REAR CROSS- TRAF­FIC ALERT

Techlife News - - News -

This sys­tem is most use­ful when you’re in a park­ing lot and have to re­verse out of a space. Sen­sors on the rear bumpers de­tect an ap­proach­ing ve­hi­cle and warn you that it’s there. Names in­clude Rear Cross Path De­tec­tion (Fiat), Mov­ing Ob­ject De­tec­tion (In­finiti) and Rear Traf­fic Alert (Volk­swa­gen).

SHOULD YOU GET IT?

Yes, but don’t ex­pect it to catch ev­ery­thing. As the name im­plies, the sen­sors will spot ob­jects cross­ing from the sides of the ve­hi­cle. If some­thing or some­one is di­rectly be­hind the ve­hi­cle, you won’t get the alert.
